Ordering FAQs


Online orders

Please Note: The information below refers to the ordering or purchase of patterns, quilts or other items from my online Store. For information about pricing of Online Courses please read the information regarding pricing for Online Courses via the Deborah Wirsu Arts Academy. Pricing of online classes. 

All orders received at DeborahWirsu.com are processed using PayPal. This allows payment from major credit cards or funds in your PayPal account. Funds are processed in Australian dollars (AUD).

During the ordering and checkout process you will be prompted to create an account at DeborahWirsu.com (this is not a PayPal account). This is advisable if you are purchasing a downloadable product as you can review your past order history in your account details. Your details are not used for the purposes of sending unsolicited mail, and are never divulged to a third party. Your privacy is respected at all times. 

How do I set up a PayPal account?

Go to www.paypal.com to set up a secure account for your online payments. This is an easy process and once your account is set up you can send funds to DeborahWirsu.com.

Payment via major credit cards is possible via PayPal without setting up a PayPal account. Visit the PayPal site for more information. You will need to click on ‘Don’t have a Paypal account’  and follow the prompts. You will then be able to pay with your credit card without setting up a Paypal account.

I don’t want to use PayPal and would like to pay by another method. Is this possible?

Yes, certainly! Please contact Deborah Wirsu with your request. Payments can be processed via direct bank transfer. For Australian residents, payment by cheque or money order is also acceptable. Downloadable products will be emailed once your payment has been received and cleared.

Prices are in Australian dollars – please allow for currency differences.  Funds will be received in Australian dollars (AUD) only. Paypal and banks will deal with currency differences.
